- WWE has signed Alexander Jones of Knox Pro Wrestling to a developmental deal. He will be headed to NXT in Florida soon. Knox Pro is the school in Simi Valley, California owned by former WWE star Rikishi.

– This week’s WWE Classics Five-Star Match of the Week was chosen by Matt Striker and he picked the 2 of 3 Falls Match between Eddie Guerrero and Dean Malenko that aired on the August 26th, 1995 episode of ECW TV. Striker told WWE’s website:

“During this time, I had dreams of being a professional wrestler. I would study these tapes and steal these moves. I tried to emulate Dean and Eddie to a tee and I was nowhere near as talented as either of those guys. Watch that match and see the story that these two men are telling. There are no catchphrases. There are no T-shirts being sold. There’s no cool fanfare on a TitanTron behind you. It’s just two guys in a dingy wrestling hall in front of true wrestling fans doing what the sign on the arena says. They are wrestling. The ovation, the appreciation, the camaraderie and the brotherhood is something that transcends all of sports, all of pop culture. For one brief moment, you believed in what Eddie Guerrero and Dean Malenko were doing. And because of those men and their dedication to our craft, that moment that you believe stays with you for the rest of your life.”

– Naomi gets the “Diva Spotlight” on WWE’s website today.
